Our psychological structure can be expressed through the layout and space in our handwriting. What we mean by psychological structure here are our behavior, how we socialize, the way we think and feel, and our entire personality construct.
Today, let us look into how we normally write addresses on envelopes.
Many of us might have not written to someone a letter as often as we used to. But that does not mean you have not done at least once in your lifetime.
Basically, it doesn’t matter the size or the shape of the envelope, technically we were taught at school to write on the center of the envelope. Why? Because generally, writing in the center looks more organised, and more formal.
And well in graphology, it does tell us the same thing. It tells us about how the writer is specific in measuring the exact placement of the recipient’s address in order to be accurate in its measurement of margin and space.
How the first impression looks of the letter is essential to him. And he wants to be perceived as someone who is meticulous.
Although we were taught to write like this in school, you must wonder why each one of us ended up writing everywhere but the center.
In science of handwriting analysis, that is what it is. That is how your mind works and therefore automatically or another word for this is subconsciously reflected on your handwriting.
Let us understand what it means when we write the recipient’s address nearer to the top section of the envelope.
It is similar to the concept of writing on the upper zone area in the basics of studying handwriting.
So, what does this tells you about the writer?
This normally defines how the writer focuses on his or her tendency to look into matters more philosophically. In which this means prioritizing high value on the more complex forms of the knowledge they are researching into. We can also expect the writer to decide logically without being influenced by her feelings or emotions.
Another style is when the writer placed it nearer to the bottom section of the envelope. We can expect that this writer is looking more into the practical aspect of the things she does and decides. She is interested in the outcome, the practical instead of talk and talk about how fantastic it will turn out.
If you have read the article which I wrote Would You Recruit Her? She Writes Near to The Left Margin with Wide Right Margin, explaining the location of where you place the texts on the paper signifies how one look into the past and future, you will understand this next example.
The left part of the paper or anything you write on is normally referred to as the past, while the right side of it is the future.
When you see that the address is written on the left side of the paper, remember what it means? It has something to do with the writer’s past.
It tells us about how the past is clouding the writer’s decision. We can expect that the she might have resistance to tell her opinions worried on what she had done or wanted to do.
Sometimes the fear could be about failing, successful, being judged and anything related to their past. However, on the other hand, because she is cautious, it could be observed that she is gracious and polite before expressing their views.
And what about the ones who write the address on the right side of the envelope?
This writer is more comfortable to mingle when they are mixed into a new crowd. We can expect that she is confident to talk to someone she meets for the first time.
Other than that, remember the right and left connection with the past and future.
So, what can we expect from this writer regarding her view on her what is waiting for her next?
Yes, you are right.
She looks forward for what is there ready for her.
Whenever we observed any of these types of handwriting on the next envelope your received from your pen pals, friends or family members, learn to observe and understand the science of it.
Please do not start to pinpoint “Hey you are this or that” to them. That is not how studying handwriting works. Learn by finding out more not solely by the envelopes. Study also the letters and consistency of their handwriting every time they send one. You will learn more when you are interested.
